Title: Synthesis of a Polymeric Hybrid Ion Exchanger with Recovered Iron(III) Towards the Removal of Arsenic
Can waste iron hydroxides be used to create an ion exchanger for arsenic removal from water supplies?
P3 researchers are attempting to determine if 70 percent of ferric hydroxides can be removed from water treatment wastes and then used to capture arsenic from other water supplies. This project could reduce treatment wastes from one part of the globe (the US) and create a treatment mechanism to remove arsenic from other water supplies, for example, in India.
